CD Reviews

One of CHET'S best!!!!
Coleen | Down in the alley | 04/21/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was recorded in a Paris studio in 1978. If you like Chet's albums he made for Steeplechase Records in 1979, or if you like She Was Too Good To Me or You Can't Go Home Again, this is an absolute must!!! This includes Chet's best ever renditions of How Deep is The Ocean? and Oh You Crazy Moon. The title track, Broken Wing, is simply melancholy jazz at its finest. ANY major Chet fan will love this album, possibly even mild/new Chet fans - don't pass this one by!!!"

"You don't have to be a Chet Baker fan to dig this CD. "Black Eyes" is great. This is one of those CDs that I play over and over again. I rate this and Chet's "A Sentimental Walk In Paris" CD as tops."

"I agree 100% with the two previous reviews of this beautiful cd. I ac-
quired the Japanese version of this when it first came out, then it was
very briefly available from France. Both versions of this (with the two
alternate takes of "Black Eyes" and "How Deep is the Ocean?") are now out
of print and expensive to get. However, the Inner City label, which
ORIGINALLY released this with 5 tracks on vinyl back in the 70's, has re-
cently been revived and the original recording is now available on cd from
them with the great front cover shot of Chet's face in deep concentration
with his horn just like the original album cover. It's been one of my
favorite Baker recordings since I first heard it. It's so romantic and
cool, just like Chet was. His vocal on "Oh, You Crazy Moon" is a classic.
I have over 100 Baker recordings, and this cd, along with the fabulous
"She Was Too Good to Me" (CTI), also from the 70's, always seem to get
the most play with me. Get the new Inner City cd version of this that's
available now. Chet was a true artist and his beautiful playing and voice
are timeless. This one is a classic and haunting example. Brilliant.
To quote Michael Zwerin (International Herald Tribune) from the ori-
ginal back jacket cover of "Broken Wing": "They endure. We can call
them "evergreens", those musicians with strong enough personalities to
neutralize stylistic definitions. Zoot Sims, Lee Konitz, Horace Silver,
... Chet Baker. They play the way they speak. They play to speak. Their
horns are a part of their physiognomy. Generally they are people who do
not use words easily. Music is the way they objectivize. Style has ab-
solutely nothing to do with it. Styles come, styles go...for the Ever-
greens speaking through music is a matter of necessity...simply life and
death. When Chet sings you can hear it clearly. Chet singing is his
horn with words. The same foggy funk...so romantic, direct, guileless
(like a child), eternal...so refreshing in these days of screech and
electronically distorted decibels. Good medicine for the eardrums."
